Clasico final would be historic, says Pique

The Barcelona defender is excited about a potential final against the tournament holders if Carlo Ancelotti’s side can overcome Juventus

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique is hoping his side face arch-rivals Real Madrid in the Champions League final for the first time in history.

The Catalans reached the Berlin showpiece on Tuesday with a 5-3 aggregate win over Bayern Munich, while Carlo Ancelotti’s side trail Juventus 2-1 ahead on Wednesday’s second leg at the Bernabeu.

Barca remain in the hunt for a second treble triumph but the former Manchester United man is taking nothing for granted as they hope to seal La Liga on Sunday, should their game against Atletico Madrid not be postponed due to the upcoming strike.

“It would be very exciting to be the first to play a Champions League final against your closest rivals,” he is quoted as saying by AS.

“It would be something historic. The treble would be the most beautiful. But we know that everything can change in a moment.

“We’ll see if we have to play this weekend against Atletico Madrid due to the strike. Everything looks very good but we need to finish well.

“We’ve done everything right but we must close out the titles.”

Should the Liga strike be called off, Barcelona will face Atletico at 19:00CET at the Vicente Calderon.
